Can BLACK people swim?
Well no flippin duh. Most black people are born in tropical countries or around areas with water. Therefore they know how to swim because they fish to get food so they don't DIE. You are just plain ignorant and stupid if you think you know otherwise.

Not tolerating your BS

NO BLACKS CANNOT SWIM!
Not all black people are born in tropical countries. What about the black people in Africa? There is no water anywhere near the blacks that live in Africa. Go watch the 2016 Olympics and tell me if you see any black people getting any medals(besides the participant medal). Sure SOME blacks can swim, but not as well as white.

V It's an entirely humourous joke.

Why is this the thing bothering you when there's far worse racism occurring, like the murder of nine black men by a white supremecist? Surely you should be standing with other black people over that, rather than trawling Debate.org for harmless jokes?

Do yall know how RACIST that is! I am mixed, but mostly black, and that is so RACIST. 99.9% of the black people I know were born here in frickin' AMERICA! YALL NEED TO QUIT BEING SO RACIST and talk about something else.

Reasons for voting decision: The resolution does not contain a quantifier before the word black, therefore it is assumed that it's all black people can swim. Pro gives the claim that black people can swim because they live around tropical countries/areas around water, however Con turns this link against Pro by saying that not all black people do, therefore proving that Pro's warrant does not work for black people not around water. This disproves the claim that all black people can swim. Even if the quantifier wasn't all, I didn't buy the Pro argument that fishing links to having to swim. You do not have to swim to fish.
